Several months ago I gave a workshop on how to take better pictures with the camera you have. (You don't necessarily need to go out & buy a better camera to improve your photos!) I thought it would be something worth sharing here, so I'm going to share it in parts. Each Friday I'll share another part. If you have any photography-related questions that you'd like to see me answer, feel free to leave them in the comments
(or e-mail me). Perhaps I could do a post on a subject you're curious about.
1. Draw an imaginary tic-tac-toe grid over your photo. Compose your photo so that the interesting part of the photo is at one of the intersections of the grid. This makes for a more interesting photo visually.
When you look at this photo, what is your eye drawn to first?
Hopefully it's Katrina's eye ;) That was the goal. See how her eye lines right up at the intersection of the grid?
Share the photos you're taking with the tips in this series on Instagram, using the hashtag #RaisingMemories
